Has anyone had, or does anyone know of anyone who has had either PAE or UroLift AFTER haveing had prior radiation to the prostate for Gleason 6 prostate cancer?
I had HDR Brachytherapy radiation in Sept. 2014. Prior to that I had BPH issues for four years, and since the HDR still have all of the typical BPH symptoms. My prostate was meaured at 56cc two years ago with some median lobe extension. Normally, after radiation, the prostate stops growing and actually shrinks a bit, and it feels like this has happened in my case.
But the BPH symptoms persist and I was turned down for PAE last year because of the prior radiation, and just spoke with a urologist who was unsure about the UroLift on the same grounds - that the prostate is no longer pliable.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
